For the fourth straight year Burton was tasked with creating the uniforms for the US Olympic snowboarding team. From the distressed denim snowboard pants of the Vancouver Olympics to the quilted flag pattern in 2014, Burton's outfits always seem to create quite a buzz. The 2018 PyeongChang outfit is no different. In what is an obvious homage to NASA, Burton debuted a space themed uniform hoping that they will help riders fly higher and to places unknown. The real question is how will these NASA themed snowboarding uniforms be received?

With both bindings priding themselves on weight reduction, you won't believe how light your ride will feel. The XV is definitely the lighter of the two with it's carbon Fiber construction which creats a stiff bomber binding that will destroy the gnarliest lines on the mountain. The XF utilizes a super tough nylno base that remains leightweight but offers more flex and forgiveness for those looking to spend more time free riding and in the parks. Both have all new hi-backs and a plethora of other features that combine for a ride so comfy and fun that you'll be wondering how you ever rode anything else!

Finally! The season is almost here, and your brand new board is sitting by idly, not-so-patiently waiting for the resorts to get a little more of that sacred white stuff, and open up at least a few early season runs. But...Is your board ready? Sure, it looks nice, and it has all of the latest and greatest technology, but what's the real story? Do factories send out their boards ready to ride or do they still need a little luv'n before they are really prepped for the hill?
The answer will depend on...
